Last trip of the Summer

974415096212 I don’t know why I said last trip since we spent most of the summer avoiding the heat with baby Ava.  Either way, we had fun going down to League City to see the grandparents and luckily, Matt, Bitt Bitt, Quinn and Nash were there too!

Our first order of business was to see Grandmother.  She hadn’t seen Ava since she was two months old.  Granted, it was only a month later but you know how much babies change in a day!  It was fun to have Michael visit with Gigi and get his little sticky finger prints on all of her glass furniture.  She didn’t mind though, in fact she left them there!240834586212IMG_0704IMG_0703

(don’t worry, plenty of sunscreen and a beach umbrella were used!)  IMG_0698 IMG_0699 IMG_0700 IMG_0701   IMG_0697Saturday, exhausted from the beach we just rested most of the day and waited for Quinn and Nash to arrive.  Sunday we got to hear Matt preach again and then after much needed naps we got to visit with Uncle Ron.  It was so good to see him, we sure do miss visiting with him.  706664586212826664586212 938454586212428454586212

Sadly we had to leave on Monday but not before getting a picture of PawPaw and his grandbabies.  It was so fun spending time with family and I wish we all lived closer.  At least we have these memories to get us through until the next time.  886884586212
